I've just added a check to inspect and removed the google analytics
script tags from gil.
Apart from these script tags the inspect script is now flagging a lot
of external images. Almost all of these are either the boost logo or
W3C valid html logos. For all the boost logo images I've changed them
to use a local copy. I guess we can include a copy of the W3C logos
with boost, I think their only redistribution requirement is that
they're only used on valid pages, so I guess we're allowed to include
them, but they won't be under the boost license - does that matter?
Boost.Graph also uses a lot of external images which seem to be mostly
charts generated by a php script.
